12 Tags of Xmas, Tag #3

Now, this was a fun one, Linda!

Here's my tag for Tag #3 of The Funkie Junkie's 12 Tags of Xmas:

...inspired by her tag:

I loved everything about Linda's third tag... so purely Christmas with those candy stripes.  I saw this and planned to run with it... but then my card turned directions, as they often do.  Obviously I went with the candy-stripe red, used a tag and some baker's twine, and also some pearly baubles.   Otherwise, I opted for an aged paper versus the bright-white, and added some "greenery" just because it was right on my desk.

Supplies and notes on my take:

  • Library card base daubed with Tim's Distress Embossing Ink through his Stripes stencil then heat-embossed with Stampendous EP in Red Tinsel
  • "Love" tag made out of another library catalog card and stamped with Tim's Christmas alphabet; Tim's Chitchat stickers added along the side; popped up with 3M dimensional adhesive.
  • Scrap baker's twine added to top and some Stickles Xmas Red added to bottom
  • Green seaming binding trim from the latest goodie-bag from Linda's Funkie Junkie Boutique (thanks!) stitched on with the ol' machine; I added Tim's baubles, inked with Red Pepper Alcohol Ink and adhered with E-6000 glue
  • Tim's paper dolls adhered with Elmer's Craft-Bond
  • The whole tag was kind of inked with Gathered Twigs DI


  1. Wow, what a great take on Linda's tag!

  2. Ooh, your red is even more gorgeous than mine :) I so love the use of the library cards and the paper dolls is such a cool addition And how fun is it for me to see you using the seam binding that from the goodie bag bow! I always hope that everything we send will eventually end up on a craft project. This one is definitely a gem. Thanks so much for sharing it with us.
